That hill is dangerous enough in a vehicle, I couldn't imagine walking in the middle of the road right there. I'm always waiting to get smacked head-on when driving over that hill because who knows what's on the other side! YOU HAVE TO GO SLOW!

Sad day :(

This is sad, wish we had sidewalks everywhere, I am sure the officer was going the speed limit and was being very careful, or was he on a call with no lights on, driving 90.

I hope the family of the victim takes catoosa police to court for this because they are always taking advantage of their resources! I have also almost go hit by a catoosa cop because he was not paying attention and on the phone! They also go way to fast down port road with no lights or siren most of the time and they are so rude when they do pull you over like you are a criminal. I hope catoosa police will look at this in a way that their cops need to be retrained or brought attention to.

The sun would be coming up at that time so he should have had time to see them walking down the street. There aren't side walks on that road so i would be careful to fault the victim when it is probably more like the officer was speeding.

How sad for all involved. The officer now has to live with this for the rest of his life because she chose to walk where it was unsafe-the middle of the road, when its dark and possibly foggy outside, also while walking up and down hills where cars can't see you.

it is probably more like you don't know any facts at all about this and you are judging the police as guilty.
How do you know the couple was not drunk and walking home from a night of partying?? Hmm? That could just as easily be the cause.

They will just say it was dark and not his fault and that they should have been walking somewhere else. NOW, if it werent a police officer and it was an average joe they would arrest the joe and charge with vehicular manslaughter charges and lock that person up and ruin their life. Yet, if you are an officer you get paid leave.

Why would you walk down the middle of the road?!?! Anyone coming over that hill would have hit the person just bad timing for the policeman. Juzzaboo if the police pull you over for speeding you are a criminal you broke the law so you should be treated as such sorry they didn't serve you coffee the last time you broke the law... Hope the rules of the road protect this officer!

As I was exiting Woodcrest Estates onto Pine this morning between 4:30 & 5:00, I think I may have encountered the same person. I was traveling east & suddenly there was a person at the edge of my headlights. They were dressed in dark pants & a navy (I think) T-shirt. They appeared to be trying to thumb a ride. I almost called 911 to report. Wish I had now. Pine is very narrow & very dark. No place to walk or stand except in the road. Had I been meeting another vehicle or not had my entire focus on the road, I would have almost certainly hit this person. Very sad but in this case I don't believe the policeman could have avoided the incident.

ANY body could have hit these people since they were walking in the middle of the road. Since they were hit by an officer, people are being 10 times more hard on him. We are human and we can only do so much...everybody is assuming that he was speeding or doing something wrong. Give him a break and let the facts come out from the investigation.

I can't help but to think that if we could only afford to turn the street lights back on, that this might have been prevented??

The Catoosa Police do a pretty good job of patrolling this stretch of road but it is very dangerous. No place to be on foot for sure. When weather is bad it is difficult if not impossible to drive on. Always large trucks present even though signs say "No Thru Trucks". Stop sign at 177th and Pine is a problem. Entrance into and exit from Woodcrest Estates is like playing with dynamite. There is some pot holes that caused damage to one of my tires recently. No I wasn't speeding. And there is crumbling at the outer edges of the road which tries to pull you off the road into the ditch. Catoosa really needs to look at fixing some of their roads. Instead we work on gaining access to the casino the best road work. I'm tired of the needless and preventable accidents and fatalities in Catoosa due to nobody doing anything. My prayers to family, friends and the officer(s) that are now in the middle of this nightmare.

Guess he was not in "control of his vehicle". Was speed an issue? Were the people "walking in the middle of the road" or crossing the street? How many times do you see cops speeding with no lights or sirens? It seems these laws do not apply to law enforcement.By the way , who sites a speeding cop?
